Page break with \include

I am using the Report document class and to manage the document i have divided it into seperate .tex files that are compiled within a main document. The main document contains the prefatory material and begins as follows:


I then include the various report parts using:

% Prefatory pages for the report %

When I compile the document a blank page is being inserted between each new included file. I have checked each file and they do not finish with a page break or similar. How can I stop the inclusion of the extra blank pages?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Please, show how the included files start. – egreg Sep 11 '12 at 13:50

Use \input instead of \include.

because \include allways includes first a blank page, then print the text. \include is very usefull to include chapters (beginning on a new page) in your document. \input does not insert a blank page. – Kurt Sep 11 '12 at 18:16
